Dr. and Mrs. Harold P. Heafner Jr. Scholarship Fund

Dr. and Mrs. Harold P. Heafner Jr. Scholarship Fund

Dr. Harold P. Heafner Jr. (D.D.S. Class of 1957) and his wife Beverly established this scholarship in 2019.

Heafner was born and raised in Portsmouth, Va. where he practiced for 38 years. Heafner was influenced to create this scholarship by two of his classmates.  Dr. Calvin Belkov created a scholarship at the dental school in memory of his parents, and Dr. Joe Adair has also been very generous with the school.  Heafner is proud to follow their examples by creating this fund to help future students of their beloved dental school alma mater. 

Following their 60-year class reunion in 2017, Heafner, Adair and their other classmates decided not to wait for five years for their next reunion. They have started a new tradition of gathering annually at every reunion.


  • D.D.S. candidate during their 3rd or 4th year.
  • A worthy student in need of financial help.
  • Preference should be given to a resident of Virginia.
